Coaching, Consulting, Mentoring

Engagement Fees (All fees in US $)

Seminars (including keynotes) and coaching workshops are considered ENGAGEMENTS. An engagement is any event or session, which includes the delivery of a seminar (one or more lectures); and/or presentation skills coaching for one or more individuals; and/or consultation on the development of content (script or message).

An engagement may comprise up to a full eight-hour day, and can occur on a weekend or legal holiday (for an additional fee). Travel expenses are additional, but there is no charge for the actual travel time (hours) in getting to or leaving an engagement, unless the engagement is held outside the U.S. or Canada.

Executive Coaching, billed in half-day increments (depending on location), is a special arrangement for one person who is looking to brush-up for an event, or for an individual looking for one-to-one skills training without involving a group of people. These sessions are usually geared to high-profile presenters such as, CEO’s, politicians, keynote speakers, key opinion leaders, etc., who want to develop specific skills in a private, one-to-one environment, rather than in a group setting.

Presentation Creation / Review, billed hourly, occurs when visuals are designed and/or reviewed, usually in the form of electronic (PowerPoint) presentations. As a means of estimating the cost for designing a presentation, assume that three to five visuals can be created per hour.

Special Events

Discount pricing (multiple-day engagements and contracts) will NOT apply to certain venues, including large-scale (media-driven) productions, political campaigns, Initial Public Offerings (IPOs), etc. — where the normal workday is staggered and stretched disproportionately (longer days) due to the nature or scope of the project.

However, special event pricing arrangements can be made according to the specific requirements of a long-term project

Comparing and Saving

Regarding the multiple-day pricing section, the third column shows the actual cost per day for the program. The discount levels change at 2-days, 4-days, and contract days (6 or more).

The last column reflects the overall savings for conducting multiple events as compared to doing the same number of events, individually, as single engagements.

Notes

1. A single engagement is charged as a full-day, regardless of the time used. Whenever air travel is required, a daily engagement rate applies based on the number of days used. This applies to keynote addresses, conference breakouts, morning or afternoon lectures, consultations, executive coaching and other events that may not take a full day.

2. Rates for multiple-day engagements (non-contract) are based on the premise that all events occur on consecutive days. To split a multiple-day arrangement over non-consecutive days, the multiple-day rate from the prior (higher-priced) level applies. Thus, a 4-day engagement, with each session conducted on non-consecutive days, would be billed at the 2-day rate, which is the previous level discount. A 3-day engagement done on non-consecutive days would be billed at the single engagement rate.

3. Pricing applies to events held in the U.S. or Canada and travel days are normally excluded from the total engagement days. However, for events requiring 3 or more air-travel hours from Boston (such as West Coast), especially for work done on weekends, any extra days needed to allow for travel may be added into the cost of the engagement. Thus, a two day program in California may require an extra day of travel from Boston prior to or following the event. Each travel day would be billed at the daily engagement rate for the event.

4. REST-OF-WORLD events are charged differently. Due to additional travel time, events held in other parts of the world (South America, Europe, Asia, etc.) will be billed at 20% above the specific engagement rate applicable to the scope of the work and all travel days for these global events will be considered as engagement days. Air travel for rest-of-world destinations is always ticketed as business class (one class above economy or coach class).

5. Webinars (online seminars) can be arranged privately, for a single organization. Price is per event or session, usually up to one hour. The organization hosts the event and is responsible for registering the attendees. Public Webinars are priced per person or per attendee, where each person registers for the event separately.

6. Customized coaching programs are based on flexible hours and personalized scheduling, location independent, and designed for a high-profile individual who requires in-depth attention to message management and delivery. Candidates include those involved with media events, public speeches, political campaigns, shareholder meetings, Initial Public Offerings, commencements, etc. Flat rates per session begin at $2,500 and adjust according to scheduled hours which may include evenings, weekends, and holidays. Programs are quoted on request

Other Details

1. Unless otherwise arranged, all engagement fees are payable in advance, no less than 2 weeks prior to the event. Discount pricing is VOID if payment terms are not met, such as for advanced payments. Related expenses are billed separately, after the engagement has been completed. In some cases, books, CDs and other materials are billed along with the expenses, after the event.

2. A contract is a separate agreement that requires a minimum of SIX engagements. Although the days can be non-continuous, all engagements in a contract must be completed within one year (12 months) from the date of the first engagement. For example, a contract for the minimum six engagements might begin March 15 of one year may and cover two consecutive days in March and then another day in June, then one day in September, one in December and the last day in the following February. All six events will be completed within one, 12-month year. In the absence of that contract, that same arrangement for those six events would have billed the 2-day rate for the ones in March (which were consecutive) and four one-day events at the single engagement rate. While the payments would have been staggered, the overall cost for the same six events would be nearly 25% higher than the contract price. Contracts must be paid in full, in advance, to secure the low rate.

3. Based on the specific engagement rate in effect, an additional fee of 10% may be applied to any engagement held on a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday.

4. Engagement fees cover one coach working with groups of two or more individuals. Executive Coaching applies to one individual only and sessions cannot be shared or split among different people.

5. Depending on location, the rate for Executive Coaching can be a special rate or part of the normal engagement rate, or offered as a web-based hourly rate. Contracts are not offered for this type of service.

A. The special one-day local rate for Executive Coaching, a six-hour maximum, is based on proximity to the Boston metro area (within driving distance).

B. Whenever air travel is involved, Executive Coaching is priced according to the prevailing daily rate. While half-day rates are normally only available as part of multiple-day engagements, there is an exception for Executive Coaching involving air travel. For example, an afternoon Executive Coaching session, involving a morning flight and a same-day departure, could be billed at a half-day rate, without requiring any other engagements.

C. Web-based DIGITAL COACHING done online, via the internet, does not require any minimum number of hours.

6. In a typical full-day coaching workshop that includes an opening lecture to the group, approximately 10 individuals can be coached, assuming about 30-minutes per person.

7. Since engagement pricing in not based on a “per-person” charge, seminar events (lectures) can include as many people as the space accommodates. This reduces the cost-per-person analysis sometimes used to justify an event for groups or departments maintaining a separate budget.

8. To help reduce expenses for all parties, air travel to multiple engagements may be combined into a single ticket.
